Chapter 5. Generic Object Detection for Industrial Applications

This chapter will introduce you to the world of generic object detection, with a closer look at the advantages that industrial applications yield compared to the standard academic research cases. As many of you will know, OpenCV 3 contains the well-known Viola and Jones algorithm (embedded as the CascadeClassifier class), which was specifically designed for robust face detection. However, the same interface can efficiently be used to detect any desired object class that suits your needs.

Note

More information on the Viola and Jones algorithm can be found in the following publication:

Rapid object detection using a boosted cascade of simple features, Viola P. and Jones M., (2001). In ...
